Maybe not cheap, Christian, but there they were right in front of you! If you didn't want to spend who knows how much time and effort (and gasoline in your car) to look for that "set", I think you did very well.

Finding nice matching skillets , you did great going back and buying them . As mentioned you can spend so much time and money driving all over the place trying to make a set .

You're off to a very good start I'd say .

They were not cheap, but I wouldn't call them expensive either. I consider them a wise purchase.

The #7 and #6 are the older ones . They are what is called the "early" handle Small Logo and date from 1939 to 1944 . They are the ones I collected for a long time until I started with the Large Block Logo .

My daughter now has the set of Early Handle Small Logo . They are every bit as well made as the LBL skillets and can be bought at much better prices usually .

Christian, the price you paid would not be exorbitant in my area of the US...

Default My first LBL Griswold

A no. 3 LBL EPU (pn 709). Did I get that right?

Talk the talk! Sounds right to me. However, I wouldn't throw that out at a cocktail party.

Since all LBL are EPU, it's not really necessary to append it. It also seems eBay sellers think buyers are preoccupied with p/ns (and pattern letters), but not really so much.

Maybe some of us less educated folks appreciate the whole story when we hone in on one aspect of our search, including part numbers. Especially when there are options like this example taken off this site and the medium logo has been downplayed.
